Thank you for the response. I've sorted out my problem with the help of it.
There was a big error i could find in error logs.

Jul 09 11:22:10 Error: Raw backtrace: /usr/local/libexec/dovecot/deliver

It was sieve plugin which was not compatible with dovecot version. I
upgraded the sieve plugin from 1.1.6 to 1.1.8 and the error stopped to come.

Have a nice time,
